region champsLast night, the wrestling Mules first defeated Saline and then went on to win over John Glenn in the Regional final! While the Mules had a commanding 66-12 victory over the hornets, their 31-28 win over the home team rockets was hard fought and very well earned! Match by match results can be viewed by checking out our twitter feed or our facebook page.
